Old Smock Mill is a romantic place for couples. The atmosphere inside is peaceful and relaxing. Everything is designed to unwind you from the moment you walk in. It is surrounded by the lovely Kent countryside where you can ramble and refresh yourselves by perhaps ending the day in one of the great pubs cosy by a log fire in Winter or in Summer in an English garden. Guests have said how hard it is to tear themselves away, it truly is a treasure to find.

Hello I enjoy painting in oils, gardening and seeing gardens, cooking and having great meals with the family. We love to holiday in the West country by the sea. With the Windmill I have worked to create an interesting space for people to share and enjoy. The Windmill is set in our garden and we are delighted to meet the guests who will be staying although you are left to be as private as you wish. We have Ash our golden labrador and Maisie the kitten who is very much the boss. Freshly laid eggs from our organic chickens are given as part of your welcome basket. We look forward to meeting you in our relaxing surroundings.
